For a woman, wearing a talis is a voluntary mitzvah. When a man tries to do a voluntary mitzvah (eg remarrying after he has kids) no one asks if he is making a political statement or demands to know why he isn't focusing his attention on the performance of required mitzvot. We just commend him politely on his performance of the voluntary miztvah and move on. Is it really so controversial to insist that women receive the same courtesy?
